hey'll be happy plants. You can eat the nasturtium flowers and leaves just don't use pesticides. They give a peppery flavor to any salad similar to watercress. Also you can use them in pasta dishes, and the flowers add a nice hint color and flavor. Nasturtium seeds are edible as well when they are young and green and have been likened to capers when pickled. You can even get some vitamin C from them.
Nasturtiums are fast growing and can sown directly in the garden. Sow Nasturtium seeds after the last frost date in your zone. They germinate in 7-10 days depending on the weather and soil temperatures.
Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 10 to 12 inches apart.
